    Given the events in Ireland, some attention needs to be given to the situation in Ireland, which has the highest rate of fire deaths in Europe.

    I can't find our posts about the Leuven fire in which two students burned to death,

    The Irish College at Leuven is a supposedly prestige institute, visited in the recent past by Mary McAleese and Enda Kenny amongst others.

    There was a verdict on this in the Belgian courts today - http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-36101410.html

    The Director was given a year's suspended jail sentence because of breach of fire regulations causing death.

    The accommodation, as I remember from reports at the time, was appallingly sub standard.

    60 cars burnt out yesterday very rapidly in a multi-storey car park fire in Douglas, Cork. It reportedly started with one car and spread very quickly. All of these places have sprinkler systems and I've never heard of a fire of that kind - big questions to be asked and worrying for anyone living in apartments over underground car parking.

    I don't know if you can ever eliminate the risk of the occasional f.reak incident. Fire seemingly started (not arson) in an Opel Zafira. Not the first time similar problem with these cars have been identified.

    You may not be entirely wrong. But the increased number of cars being lost in these fires (1,400 in one fire in Liverpool last year) is it seems because of the increasing amount of flammable plastics going into car manufacture.
